Birdie !!

Great ! I’ve a brilliant idea for this post and it’s not about cats as Samantha is too good !

I’ve got half an hour before I go down to the local store.

It’s a beautiful sunny autumn day. The wind is strong and cool, so I only have one french door slightly open.

Both cats are cuddling, curled up in the same basket …….

b15

….. and I’m looking through Shey’s latest post.

Shey

All is well. Quiet. Homely.

SUDDENLY !

CHAOS !!

b16

There is a bird in the house. It’s whizzing round ……

b12

…… in the salon …..

b4

…… in the bedroom ……

b6

b3

……. in the kitchen …..

b4

b10

…… it’s mayhem !

I add to the madness by running around opening the doors and windows !

b20

Trapping the bird in a corner, I pick it up and release it back into the wild Spanish landscape.

b20

The cats are exhausted, flopped out …….

b9

b23

…… while I restore the rug armageddon.

b26

Whew !

b20

Okay cats ! What type of bird was it ?

b5

No ! It wasn’t a Terrydoctor Sonic !

b18

b20

Samantha ! What does Google say it was ?

b2

No ! It wasn’t a big birdie !

???

b20

It was a sparrow !

b22

b20

I’m glad that’s over with.

Got to go to the store now ! Bye !

Is there anything you need ?Β  Valium ?

b20

I’ll leave you with these birdies.

beautiful !

b20

Did I just do a cat post ? No way !

    • Hi Yvonne πŸ˜€ I’m glad I caught it as well, though my cats don’t attack birds as I think they are just as frightened as the bird. That’s from past experience when birds have settled on my balconies.

  13. πŸ™‚ all that cat drama over a sparrow! Cats are such interesting personalities. We have four and the other day there was a cat fight over a towel that smelled like catnip. Luckily most of the four are scaredy cats so the brawl lasted for just a few seconds before everyone went scurrying away.

  15. This reminds me of when 2 birds came into our (previous house that we lived in. They made there way in from an open vent on the roof into the basement. When I went down there for who knows what – I noticed them & they were flying around like crazy. I thought that they were going to attack me. So – I ran back to the main floor & shut the door. I got distracted & forgot about them. A few days later I went back to the basement & both were dead at the foot of the steps. I was creeped out.
    I think I’m going to have nightmares about this tonight. Eeek!

  18. Fabulous! I recall this happening once some decades ago when I was a wee shoot. I told Sir a bird would warble inside if he left a screen-less window open and sure enough! Cats, rugs and bird soaring everywhere! Sir fainted and me mum chortled as she did the dash for all the windows with me. A fuzzy yellow bumble-bee wafted in, too. I caught the bee and set it free. I adore bees, they perch happily on my shoulder constantly. The bird sailed out again after her aerial tour.

    Brilliant post! And wonderful tenderness on your part to capture the wee flighty creature and to set her free, out into that wild autumnal sky. Fabulous cat post, indeed. Cheers,
